Yale embraces DHF safety recommendation for Anti-Microbial Door Handles

Yale is welcoming new recommendations from the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) marketing sub-committee, which highlight the need to reduce touchpoints within UK buildings as the Covid-19 recovery continues.

The report – titled ‘The post-Covid world: DHF’s recommendations for a ‘touch-free environment’ – pinpoints a number of solutions that can reduce interior touchpoints in order to limit the transmission of the virus.

These include products with anti-microbial surfaces, anti-Covid hardware and fully-automated doors to enable access with no human contact – all of which address the problem that doors are often touched by many people throughout the course of a day.

This is an issue that has recently seen Yale partner with market-leading antimicrobial additives provider BioCote to launch the Quartus combi door handle range, featuring a special coating that reduces up to 99.99% of microbes on its surface.

Proven effective against many common microbes including bacteria, mould and fungi, this technology protects the Quartus door handle from colonisation, significantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination.

Paul Atkinson, MD for Yale, comments: 
“As we gradually emerge from Lockdown, hygiene and cleanliness are still of upmost importance. That’s why we support the new recommendations from DHF, which address the risk posed by door handles in the post-Covid world.

“As our partnership with BioCote on the Quartus door handle range shows, this is an issue we are serious about at Yale. To further contain germs, we also offer contact-free locks such as the Keyless Connected Smart Lock and Conexis L1 Smart Lock – both of which dramatically reduce the risk of infection in high-traffic areas.”
